Teaser Tuesdays


MizB of Should Be Reading hosts Teaser Tuesdays. Anyone can play along. Just do the following:

*Grab your current read.
*Open to a random page.
*Share two "teaser" sentences from somewhere on that page.
*BE CAREFUL NOT TO INCLUDE SPOILERS! You don't want to spoil the book for others.
*Share the title and author too, so other TT particpants can add it to their TBR lists if they like your teaser!

Here's mine from "The Story of The Spaniards, Hammersmith" by E. & H. Heron collected in Victorian Tales of Mystery & Detection by Michael Cox (ed):

"The ways of spirits are strange to us simply because we need further data to help us to interpret them."

"It's a new point of view," returned Houston, "but upon my word, you know, Low, I think you're wasting your time!"

The teaser, paired with the title of the collection, makes for a very intriguing tease. Paranormal Victorian story? Interesting. If you get a chance, my teaser is here: http://readhanded.blogspot.com/2011/04/teaser-tuesdays_26.html

Glad to hear that all went well. Presuming you're comfortable and that you're being waited on hand and foot, I'll bet you're glad to be tucked up in a bed with a pile of books at hand.
